100 days poem #1

 100 days poem #1

hmmm what accomplishments have I
accomplished in the last 100 days?
anything beneficial for our world? if
you count womens marches climate
marches sending lotsa money to ossoff
durbin other dems innocence project
(haven’t sent to nat parks coral reefs
farms fish fowl fuzzy critters because
if we can’t save the earth there’s no
habitat for any of them us included) I
renewed passport drivers creds cadged
meals carried ziplocks to feasts “mind if
I take that scrap you’ve scarce sampled?”
read a few books wrote pseudo verse
staggered along on my volume four
opened my cello case buried compost
engaged a lawyer to start getting my
own orbit orderly mourned illnesses
deaths rejoiced in births even though
we’re egregiously overpopulated hope
I didn’t build any walls break any vows
burn any bridges tell any lies increase
my carbon footprint drop any bombs
(that I know of) – of course I’m guilty
especially to myself I’ll check in again
at 200 days provided anything merits
